mostly highway miles from New Jersey to
Connecticut once a week. it was selling for

Up to you. If you really like it , have your mechanic look it over first. Small amount of money for piece of mind. The seller should agree to this if they have nothing to hide. A car with 200K will require more maintenance than a lower mileage car, so have some extra cash for little and big things to start to fail.

I had a high mile acura it ran like new with 150 on the speedo but it was a manual. On that car I would say the worst problem would be the automatic transmission make sure you have someone that knows those cars look at the transmission. 2nd problem would be needing the timing belt changed if it's a v6

I agree with Tom... you should have your mechanic look at it and if the seller has an issue with that, its a good sign you should walk... he may want to go with you and that is fine, but he shouldn't look to have you go to 'his guy' or anything like that... After that, if you like the car, I would probably shoot for more like 3k... at 200k miles, regardless of highway (and everyone says that) or how well it was maintained, things just wear out so you will start to see a lot of replacement work going on and coming out of your pocket... Good luck!
